Neal (torso) will practice "in some fashion" Sunday according to head coach Dan Quinn.
The rookie safety out of Florida suffered a slight strain in his torso during practice earlier this week, and the Falcons are taking their time bringing him back. Neal was the 17th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and will be the favorite to start at strong safety for the Falcons this season given that his torso injury is nothing serious.
Toilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.
Ward (ankle) came out late, but managed to participate in some of Tuesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.
Ward has missed just over a week since injuring his ankle, but he appears to be nearing a return. His limited participation is a good sign, and he did say that it was getting better day-by-day. When he returns, he'll look to continue to push Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman for reps and carries in both the preseason and regular season.
Collins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.
